Acupuncture is derived from the Latin words “acus” (Needle) and “puncture” (Pricking). Acupuncture literally means to puncture with a needle.  Acupuncture originated from China more than 3000 years ago.  It has been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  As early as 200 BC, the first book for Traditional Chinese Medicine, “Huang Di Nei Jing” (黄帝内经) was published which described the concept of TCM and the principles of Acupuncture.


Acupuncture had been introduced to Europe as early as the early seventeenth century.  The mechanisms of acupuncture analgesia have been studied extensively since the late 1970s, outlining the role of both neural and humoral factors.  The effectiveness of acupuncture analgesia has already been established using controlled clinical studies. Proportion of chronic pain relieved by acupuncture is generally in the range of 55 – 85% which compares favourably with that of potent drugs such as morphine (helps in 70% of cases) and far outweighs placebo effect (30-35%).  


Conditions which acupuncture have demonstrated efficacy includes:

  1. Headache
  2. Facial Pain
  3. Neck Pain
  4. Pain in dentistry (Dental pain & TMJ Pain)
  5. Peri-arthritis of  Shoulder
  6. Tennis Elbow
  7. Renal Colic
  8. Knee Pain
  9. Sprain
  10. Sciatica / Back Pain
  11. Fibromyalgia
  12. Primary dysmenorrhea
  13. Post-operative pain
  14. Rheumatoid Arthritis


Compared with medication treatment, side-effects with acupuncture are quite minimal.  It has been shown in recent studies that acupuncture conducted with caution given by adequately trained practitioners carries minimal risk.  Because of the side-effects of long term drug therapy for pain and the risks of dependence, acupuncture analgesia can be regarded as the method of choice for treating many chronically painful conditions.
